  1. Quick question about the weighting system. Let’s say you add equal
    perimeter weights, perhaps 10 grams or more, to older model drivers with
    adjustable weighting (R11, R11s specifically) and adjustable loft, would
    you get the same effect of high launch, low spin?

  2. Mark, why are you not including your angle of attack, swing speed and smash
    factor in the results? I appreciate there may be a lot of numbers on the
    screen however I feel for a number of us they would be useful.

  3. Hi Mark, refreshing honest reviews good on YA! I have Nike VR pro ltd
    edition 430 head 8.5° loft fixed and Love it won 2 long drive comps with it
    280 metres. Like you say it is all about middle hits for me I have used 4
    drivers past couple years Cobra, Taylormade, Nike and if I nailed them all
    would see little difference in distances. Practice & lessons PGA deliver
    much more for me. Also use TM tour Rbladez irons which are forgiving when
    you hit clean shot gets ball high and loose very little distance. Looking
    forward to St Enidoc part 2 tonight… 

  4. Over more swings you would be able to see a bigger difference in the data.
    6 swings has a large standard deviation and large room for error. Also,
    those who hit the ball farther/more club head speed will see more dramatic

  5. I haven’t tried the TM drivers much but I have with titleist and cobra. I
    get better hits with the smaller heads on sweet spots but the larger heads
    definitely play much better outside that area. It’s a tough call especially
    due to cost.

  6. Going to try 430cc see if club head speed increases. Not a fan of the
    white, preferred if was black. Cheers as always Mark honest review. Don’t
    know why people get soo! uptight about spin & shaft
    numbers. Impact different everyday!!!

  7. I used to be a biiig Taylormade fan then went off them when they got all
    gimmicky. Do you think with the SLDR and those slot-faced iron they are
    actually coming back to form with real innovation?
